Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has officially canceled the release of Mortal Kombat X for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, after it announced that the previous generation consoles couldn’t meet expectations when it came to the quality of the game.
The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Mortal Kombat X was developed by NetherRealm Studios, who focused development of the game entirely with the Xbox One and PS4’s power in mind, while it left the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version to High Voltage Software who couldn’t get the game where WBIE wanted it to be. If the name sounds familiar, High Voltage Software is the studio that helped port Mortal Kombat X to the PC, which was plagued with issues and had to be patched multiple times before becoming playable, High Voltage also ported Injustice: Gods Among Us to the PC and PlayStation 4.
“After months of development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has come to the regrettable conclusion that we cannot release Mortal Kombat X for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Please know our teams worked diligently to meet the quality standards set by the current-gen versions of the game,” the publisher’s announcement states. “We were not able to get [these] versions to the quality expected of a Mortal Kombat game and are very sorry for not being able to deliver the products as originally planned.”
